About Wells Fargo Center
Wells Fargo Center
The Wells Fargo Center is Philadelphia’s primary sports and entertainment arena. It serves as the home arena for the NBA’s 76ers and NHL’s Flyers, and it's also used frequently by the Villanova men’s basketball team. Over the years, the Wells Fargo Center has also hosted NCAA Tournament games, the X Games, figure skating competitions, WWE events, UFC fights, and countless concerts.
Best Places to Sit at the Wells Fargo Center
For Wells Fargo Center concerts, floor seats are usually the best option if you want to be close to the stage – especially seats in the first few rows that won’t have other people blocking your view. Sections 113-115, 101, 102, and 124 are also solid options for concerts. These seats are located to the side of the stage and are the closest you’ll get to the performer outside of floor seats. Finally, Sections 106-108 and 206-208 will provide a straight-ahead view of the stage, although they are a little further away.
At Wells Fargo Center sports events, club seating is usually preferred. These seats, while expensive, will provide the best view of the entire court or ice and are well-catered. For basketball, court-side seats are available, but at a high price. In either basketball or hockey, Sections 112-114, and 101, 102, and 124 will get you closest to the action. Outside of the first two rows, sitting further back in a particular section will improve the view, even if it puts you a little further away from the action.
Tips for Visiting the Wells Fargo Center
The Wells Fargo Center is located in the same complex as Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles, and Citizens Bank Park, home of the Phillies. The three stadiums share parking facilities, so it’s important to know ahead of time if there are simultaneous events going on at the other stadiums. Traffic and parking are usually moderate if the Wells Fargo Center is the only place hosting an event, but that can change if one of the other stadiums has a game at the same time. If that’s the case, it may be best to take public transportation to and from the Wells Fargo Center.
Food to Try at the Wells Fargo Center
Philadelphia is known for a few signature dishes, and the Wells Fargo Center has a few of its own. Near Section 120, you’ll find the Broad Street Carvery, where you’ll find an excellent braised short rib sandwich. Chickie and Pete’s, a favorite Philadelphia eatery, has multiple outposts inside the arena where you'll find chicken cheesesteaks and Old Bay-smothered fries. Finally, Campo’s Hoagies has two locations that offer several tasty hoagies, including turkey, Italian, and meatball, not to mention a side of nachos.
